We spotted a chipping sparrow type bird this morning but it had a white head and neck. One small sparrow-brown colored spot on the top of his head. Any idea what it could have been? Didn't match any type we could find in our books. Can it be a mutation or just a fluke?

Not knowing the location of your sighting is problematic. Perhaps a male snow bunting?

I suggest you contact local birders or Audubon folks in your area for assistance. They are in tune with the particular birds in your area as the seasons wax and wane.
